Directions for: Tea Poached Salmon


2-3 cups water (enough to cover the salmon filets)

2 Tbsp loose green tea (or your favourite tea)

4 green onions, chopped

2 Tbsp soya sauce

2 Tbsp grated ginger

2 Tbsp honey

1 lemon, juiced and zested

2 six ounce salmon filets

2 handful baby spinach

1 cup bean sprouts


1. Bring the water to a simmer in a small sauce pot. Add the tea leaves, green onions, soya sauce, grated ginger, honey and lemon zest and juice. Simmer for a few moments. Add the salmon filets and cover. Poach the salmon for 6-8 minutes, until firm to the touch.

2. Fill two serving bowls with the baby spinach and bean sprouts. Lay a piece of salmon on top and ladle over some of the simmering hot tea broth.
